Day 24 of the 2022 World Series of Poker (WSOP) took place on June 23 and saw seven action-packed events across the vast tournament areas of Bally's and Paris Las Vegas. Two players walked away with gold bracelets for their efforts, while five other events inched closer to awarding their poker gold.
Andrew Yeh was the first player to strap a WSOP bracelet to their wrist on Day 24. Event #44: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship was down to only five players from the 209 that started, and it was Yeh who came out on top under the watchful eyes of the PokerNews Live Reporting team and viewers on the PokerGO stream, defeating Craig Chait after a three-hour heads-up battle.

Phil Hui became a WSOP champion for the third time courtesy of being the last man standing in Event #45: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed. Ten players returned for the final day's action but only one of them had chips in front of them when the curtain came down on proceedings. Hui was that player.
Elsewhere, the $250,000 buy-in Super High Roller kicked off and it was Phil Ivey who bagged up one of the biggest stacks, giving him a chance to capture what would be his 11th WSOP bracelet of a long and illustrious career.
Song Leads a Fantastic Five in the $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em Six-Max
Event #46: $5,000 6-Handed No-Limit Hold'em is down to only five players from the original 928 starters after a thrilling third day of action. Forty-six players sat down on Day 3 but a steady flow of players to the payout desk ended only when Patrick Sekinger crashed out in sixth place, bringing a close to the action.
Stephen Song is the player in pole position when the fantastic five return to the action at 4:00 p.m. local on June 24. Although Song has locked up $167,882 regardless of what happens on Day 4, the top prize if $771,765, which he already has one hand on thanks to his massive 23,320,000 stack.
Joining Song on Day 4 at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas are Tamer Alkamli (8,710,000), Jonathan Pastore (5,950,000), Elio Fox (5,635,000), and Paraskevas Tsokaridis (2,590,000).

O'Malley Comes Out On Top Of the Seniors Day 1b; Mueller Shines
Day 1b of Event #47: $1,000 Seniors Championship took the total attendance to 7,188, making this the biggest Seniors event on record. Of that bumper crowd, only 1,460 remain in contention for this tournament's bracelet and a first-place prize that tips the scales at $694,909.
Among those who bagged and tagged at the conclusion of the 11th level include chip leader Ken O'Malley (363,500), Carol Fuchs (232,000), Greg Mueller (191,000), Women in Poker Hall of Famer JJ Liu (175,500), Victor Ramdin (148,000), and six-time WSOP bracelet winner Jeff Lisandro (144,000), and Humberto Brenes(107,000).
Day 2 kicks off nice and early at 10:00 a.m. local time on June 24 where the returning players will fight it out over ten levels. The money bubble will burst with 1,079 places paid.

$1,500 Eight Game Mix Field Cut to 16; Stockfish Leads The Way
There are only 16 players remaining in Event #48: $1,500 Eight Game Mix 6-Handed and none of them have more chips than Jason Stockfish (2,540,000). Stockfish may hold a commanding lead going into Day 3 but his victory is far from assured thanks to some of the best mixed games players on the planet still having chips to attack him with.
Eric Buchman (1,461,000), Robert Campbell (1,229,000), and Adam Friedman (1,027,000) are just three superstars who will most certainly have an input on who wins this event's bracelet.
The 16 surviving players return to their seats from 2:00 p.m. local time on June 24. Join us then for all the action.

Jaka Bags the Day 1 Chip Lead in the $2K No-Limit Hold'em
Some 1,977 players bought into Event #49: $2,000 No-Limit Hold'em on Day 1 but only 310 of those had chips that required bagging by the time the 15th level of the night concluded.
Faraz Jaka (735,000) finished Day 1 with the chip lead, but only just because it is very tight at the top. Dan Colpoys (730,000), and John Perry (729,000) finished within a big blind of each other.
Other grinders who bagged up an ample number of chips included Romain Lewis (520,000), Natalie Hof (431,000), Jonas Mackoff (328,000), Damian Salas (318,000), and Ben Yu (292,000).
Lower down in the chip counts but still with plenty to play for are such luminaries as Georgios Sotiropoulos (248,000), Marcel Vonk (205,000), Scott Davies (184,000), Maria Ho (166,000), Chris Moorman (160,000), and recent bracelet winner Phil Hui (110,000).

Ridiculously Stacked $250K Super High Roller Sees Ivey Climb High; Mateos Leads Again
The biggest buy-in tournament of the 2022 WSOP, Event #50: $250,000 Super High Roller No-Limit Hold'em, drew in 52 entries on Day 1 with 30 of those making it through to Day 2. Late registration remains open until the start of Day 2, so expect even more stellar names to flick in the quarter of a million dollar buy-in!
Defending champion Adrian Mateos shot to the top of the overnight leaderboard after eliminating Dan Smith late into the night. Mateos returns to the fray with 9,745,000 chips or 325 big blinds as he hunts for his fifth WSOP bracelet.
Phil Ivey (6,830,000) was the chip leader for quite a while until Mateos busted Smith late on. Ivey has not added to his bracelet collection since 2014; what a way to end the drought by taking down this Super High Roller for what would be his first No-Limit Hold'em bracelet.
Dario Sammartino (4,835,000), Nick Petrangelo (4,500,000), Dan Zack (4,445,000), and Alex Foxen (4,250,000) each bagged up more than four million chips, while Martin Kabrhel (3,935,000), reigning WSOP Main Event champion Koray Aldemir (3,805,000), Chris Hunichen (3,750,000), and Ivey's nemesis in the $100,000 High Roller, Aleksejs Ponakovs (3,370,000) round out the top ten.
Day 2 shuffles up and deals at 2:00 p.m. local time, with the plan to play down to five players. Will Ivey be among that final five? Tune into PokerNews to find out.
